changing bodies

One of the main reasons teens come to Camp Endeavor is to change their bodies because they are unhappy with their physical appearance.  The fresh food along with active fun helps the campers see positive physical changes after just a few days at camp.  The pre and post evaluations at camp which include body circumferences and skin folds document the remarkable changes that can take place in as little as two or four weeks.  When campers start seeing these results, they tend to be proud of their success and feel good about who they are. Many times this enhances body image perception and self confidence, both very positive attributes of psychological health.
